Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Northington's survey of Copland's piano music is quite extensive; this release includes two arrangements (Rodeo and three pieces from Our Town) and smaller pieces, including two late compositions from 1982 that I didn't know. As Young Kim's fine liner notes make clear, all of Copland's music has an unmistakable sound. Northington performs the music beautifully, with a clear, uncomplicated sense of musical line, an absolutely perfect voicing of the harmonies, and a sense of expression tailormade for each piece. The engineering and mastering sound great: not too close, not too far, and a near perfect rendering of the sparkling, lucid tone that Northington brings to the music.
